I visited Sun Peaks in February 2023, the first season this ski resort was jointly on the Mountain Collective and Ikon Pass. When I visited, the entirety of Mt. Morrisey was completely inaccessible due to a power outage affecting the Morrisey Express chairlift, and the West Bowl T-Bar has obviously been decommissioned at this point, due for a replacement in the near future.

Even with a third of the ski resort inaccessible to spread the crowds and some extremely high quality powder to accompany it, the longest lift queues I waited in were maybe... 5-8 minutes on the Sundance Express and Sunburst Express lifts, only at certain parts of the day.

This ski resort had wonderful facilities, awesome food, and while there wasn't anything truly extreme I found, there was some excellent tree skiing and bowls in addition to the immaculately groomed cruisers. The village was one of the best I've ever personally experienced, but unlike some places like Northstar in California, it didn't screw up the parking and impact the experience of day skiers or those seeking cheaper hotels off the mountain.

This ski resort is definitely on a golden path, with plenty of room and uncrowded slopes, plenty of ambitious future plans and room for plenty more vacationers. Visit Sun Peaks, it's a great experience, I loved the place!
